A GUARD Archaeology community excavation in Argyll has recently completed the first such excavation of a Drovers' Inn anywhere in Scotland, revealing a snapshot of how it was used before it was abandoned almost 200 hundred years ago.

A team from GUARD Archaeology, led by Christine Rennie, recently carried out a watching brief during the removal of topsoil and overburden over the known remains of a Prisoner of War camp within the policies of Dumfries House in East Ayrshire.
